Wing Commander Guy Gibson was the first commanding officer of the 617 Squadron, the RAF's specialist air division created to undertake the hazardous Dambusters mission in 1943. He led his squadron of Lancaster Bombers on the low flying operation. After dropping his own bomb, Gibson repeatedly turned back to draw flak and enemy fire away from his own squadron of attacking Lancasters. With 8 planes and 56 crew members lost, Wing Commander Gibson was slightly subdued when hearing he'd received the Victoria cross for his heroics in the Dambusters raid, stating, 'It all seems so unfair'...
Just over a year later, Guy Gibson would make his final mission, an attack on Bremen. After the mission which was laden with a series of mischances, Gibson's plane crashed at Steenbergen in the Netherlands. Two bodies were recovered from the wreckage, that of Gibson himself and his navigator, Squadron Leader Jim Warwick. Gibson, though having completed over 170 operations in his career was only 24 years of age.
